No you're not missing anything, it's a fair question.
The lithium batteries last much longer than the two AA re-chargeables I used in the other camera.
You can buy a spare, they are quite cheap, but the amount of use I make of the camera shouldn't be a problem. When I upload pictures from it to my laptop, afterwards I leave it plugged in until the red light on the camera goes off, then I know it's recharged, no having to take the batteries out of the camera and putting them in a charger.

That makes sense. All the same, I'm the eternal pessimist and I always carry a spare fully charged battery whenever I go out. I'm convinced that if I didn't the battery would fail at the crucial moment.
